Description Ola Thoresen 2009-07-05 09:52:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Not sure it is related to evdev, but alt-gr has stopped working with Norwegian keyboard in gnome.
Switching to IE tty2 gives the correct behavior.

Since both [] {} @ ~ and $ requires alt-gr to be typed with a Norwegian layout, it makes my life a bit miserable at the moment... (cut'n'paste ftw!)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to type any letter that requires alt-gr (ie alt-gr 2 for @)

Actual results:
In gnome-terminal (bash) I will get '(arg: 2)' 

Expected results:

Additional info:
I have tried to change various options in the keyboard-preferences dialog, but none seems to make any difference.
